SATURDAY, SEPTEM­BER 16, 2017 Mer­cury and Mars Align to Nur­ture

It’s said that to love is a stronger feel­ing than to be loved. Ask any ex­cited new par­ent (whose heart just dou­bled in size over some­one who won’t be able to re­turn the sen­ti­ment for years, if ever) how true the state­ment re­ally is. Mer­cury and Mars now align pow­er­fully in nur­tur­ing Virgo. Love and care will grow things.

ARIES (March 21-April 19).

The­o­ries need to be tested and proven be­fore they can be prop­erly un­der­stood and taught. Ac­tion -that’s what’s needed. Stop think­ing about it and try it out.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20).

You’re an amaz­ing team player when you’re work­ing with peo­ple who want to cre­ate some­thing ex­tremely in­ter­est­ing, spe­cific, ex­cit­ing and beau­ti­ful. You’re not a good fit for peo­ple who just want to pass the time.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21).

We all have sto­ries that we tell our­selves about our­selves. You’ll con­sider whether one of yours needs an up­grade. You’ve earned your cur­rent more pos­i­tive and ma­ture per­spec­tive, so put it to work for you.

CANCER (June 22-July 22).

You’ll have to in­volve oth­ers if you want to achieve your goal to­day, and you wouldn’t have it any other way. You’ll be es­pe­cially com­pat­i­ble with earth signs: Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). “Ask lit­tle and give lots” is your motto. When you’re the more gen­er­ous one, you can al­ways be proud of your con­tri­bu­tion. Make an ex­cep­tion to­day. All will ben­e­fit from a more eq­ui­table ar­range­ment.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). While you’re usu­ally up for the risk, there are cer­tain as­pects of your life that you shouldn’t leave to chance to­day. De­clare what’s pre­cious to you, and then treat it as such by pro­tect­ing it.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The theme will cen­ter on what true se­cu­rity is, where it comes from and what you’ll do to have it. If there’s an area of your life that could use a more grown-up ap­proach, to­day brings a chance for se­ri­ous “adult­ing.”

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21).

Peo­ple wait in long lines at amuse­ment parks for the most thrilling and dan­ger­ous rides and the chance to feel very afraid and yet safe at the same time. You’ll do some­thing sim­i­lar in to­day’s sce­nario.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21).

Each per­son’s chem­istry is unique and there­fore it cre­ates unique re­ac­tions when mixed with yours. To­day you’ll be sur­prised at just how dif­fer­ent you can be around cer­tain peo­ple.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).

When you’re ab­so­lutely cer­tain about what your stan­dards and pref­er­ences are, you won’t even have to make a big deal out of as­sert­ing them. Peo­ple can just tell what you’re about to­day. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18).

Those who doubt the va­lid­ity of your in­for­ma­tion will thereby cause you to get more se­ri­ous in your word­ing, more par­tic­u­lar about your facts and more adamant in your stance.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20).

Re­frain from mak­ing a de­ci­sion that will af­fect oth­ers. Put it off un­til you can get more in­put. You can’t as­sume that what’s good for you is good for an­other per­son, even if that per­son is very much like, or even re­lated to, you.

TO­DAY’S BIRTH­DAY (Sept. 16).

You have fans by the dozens, but you have to be­lieve in your­self even more than they do to get your goal by the year’s end. Have faith and keep mov­ing! Your emo­tional bank ac­count fills up over the course of this so­lar re­turn as some­one dear to you keeps mak­ing friendly, lov­ing and gen­er­ous de­posits. Capricorn and Aries adore you. Your lucky num­bers are: 19, 30, 41, 20 and 15.


“I want to know what qual­i­ties I posses as a Capricorn. I am of­ten a loner, and I’d like to know if there’s a pos­si­bil­ity of love and ro­mance be­tween me and a Gemini. I can’t help but feel there are things that hin­der me from be­ing my true self.”

Your pri­mary strength in love is your abil­ity to un­der­stand the bot­tom line. Sens­ing what drives peo­ple is a tal­ent, and know­ing whether or not you can de­liver what they need and want is some­thing you do so nat­u­rally that you prob­a­bly don’t re­al­ize that other peo­ple have trou­ble with it. You are, at your core, a po­lit­i­cal crea­ture. You can rec­og­nize the part of love that is a game and, if you so choose, play it with­out get­ting emo­tion­ally in­volved. You’re ex­actly right in think­ing some­thing hin­ders you from be­ing your true self. When you know what a po­ten­tial love wants and can de­liver it, some­times you for­get about what you want. Learn to be­come vul­ner­a­ble. It’s OK not to al­ways have the power in love. Your les­son is how to sur­ren­der and let some­one else be strong for you. Gemini can teach you to have fun and loosen up. CELEBRITY PRO­FILES: Four Virgo lu­mi­nar­ies in her na­tal chart sug­gest that Amy Poehler is the quin­tes­sen­tial Virgo -- or­ga­nized, hard­work­ing, de­tail-ori­ented and al­ways striv­ing for im­prove­ment, just like many of the char­ac­ters she plays. Poehler’s moon in Leo, the sign of en­ter­tain­ment, is the mark of a per­son whose first in­stinct is to de­light, fas­ci­nate and some­times of­fend -- as good com­edy should!

Venus, Uranus and Hap­pi­ness

Ir­ish philoso­pher Fran­cis Hutch­e­son sug­gested, “That ac­tion is best which pro­cures the great­est hap­pi­ness.” In what time frame, though? Short term? Long term? Some­times what’s good for one cat­e­gory is bad for the other. Luck­ily, un­der to­day’s for­tu­nate trine of Venus and Uranus, what’s happy now will make for a happy fu­ture. ARIES (March 21-April 19). The faster you re­act the less you think. Mar­keters will try to use this to their ad­van­tage, im­pos­ing a tick­ing clock on the in­ter­ac­tion. Walk away from those “lim­ited time” of­fers to­day.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You started out like a groupie, and now you’re more like a critic. Get­ting a whole lot of what you love will do that to you. Back off for a while. Find some­one else to ad­mire. This is the rem­edy.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Be care­ful about what you praise, be­cause what you praise may grow. Also, what you praise re­ally sig­ni­fies your val­ues and taste. Any­way, you’re be­yond giv­ing props to su­per­fi­cial things.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Your vis­ceral re­sponse to mu­sic, a vis­ual art­work or an­other work of art that lands mar­velous on your senses will speak to the im­por­tance of art in your every­day life. How can you get more of this?

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Ask­ing for feed­back will be use­less to­day. You’re a pow­er­ful cre­ative pres­ence, and no one wants to rain on your pa­rade. How­ever, if you ask for ad­vice, you’ll get valu­able in­for­ma­tion you can use to im­prove things go­ing for­ward.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You have to in­vest in your­self to move for­ward. It’s know­ing when to stop that’s the hard part these days. Every time you rein­vest, you in­crease your risk. So how risky do you want to be?

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Should you work to en­joy the now you have or the fu­ture you don’t? This is not to say that you won’t have the fu­ture, but now is as cer­tain as cer­tain gets;

then, not so much. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Hang on through the tense parts of the day in the knowl­edge that they will pass soon enough. These lit­tle con­flicts, in­con­ve­niences and ex­pec­ta­tion ad­just­ments are re­ally un­avoid­able.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). So, you don’t know what to say. Maybe that’s be­cause there’s noth­ing worth say­ing in some sit­u­a­tions. When words can’t help, si­lence is more elo­quent than speech.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll be in an ex­per­i­men­tal and cu­ri­ous mood. Maybe it feels a lit­tle pur­pose­less, but some­times the pur­pose can be just to play around. Any­way, you can do, try, build and im­prove with­out

hav­ing a goal. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Maybe it’s not im­por­tant that you fo­cus in on one thing. You’re a lit­tle all over the place when you tend to the dif­fer­ent things you love, but in the very near fu­ture, it will come to­gether for you in some way.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Pow­er­ful peo­ple know the se­cret -- that roles are as­signed, parts are parceled, ti­tles and jobs are handed out... but no­body gives power. Power you have to take.

TO­DAY’S BIRTH­DAY (Sept. 17). Suc­cess se­cret: Get sci­en­tific on your life. De­cide which met­rics are mean­ing­ful to you, and record the data over the next 12 months. With logic, you’ll fix what’s bro­ken and in­vent won­der­ful new ways to live. Fi­nan­cial self-con­trol will al­low for a big pur­chase in 2018. Pro­fes­sions of love come in May. Libra and Scorpio adore you. Your lucky num­bers are: 10, 4, 44, 18 and 31.

FORECAST FOR THE WEEK AHEAD: Play­wright Hen­rik Ib­sen said, “The strong­est man in the world is he who stands most alone.” Ib­sen may not have been tak­ing into ac­count the deeply in­tro­verted in­di­vid­u­als for whom solo stand­ing doesn’t take nearly the strength that so­cial­iz­ing, blend­ing and team­work take. The nur­tur­ing and vig­i­lant Virgo sun in its last days sug­gests you an­a­lyze the per­son­al­ity types of those you’re work­ing with and for be­fore you make blan­ket de­ci­sions about what will be ef­fec­tive. Then Friday brings the au­tum­nal equinox, and the fo­cus shifts.

This Libra sun will take over like the host of an HGTV show. It’s time to make life beau­ti­ful. We be­come aware of the de­sign of things, which is much deeper than the ve­neer of them. The pur­pose, use and state­ment of an ob­ject are ex­pressed from its in­side to the finest de­tails of the ex­te­rior. There’s a thrill from in­ter­act­ing with spe­cial things in these early stages of the Libra sun. This isn’t so much about ma­te­ri­al­ism or su­per­fi­cial fas­ci­na­tion. Ob­jects ac­tu­ally change the way you live and what you do. Thought­ful choices in this re­gard will make a dif­fer­ence in the way you spend your hours. CELEBRITY PRO­FILES: Virgo racer Jim­mie John­son be­gan his mo­tor sports ca­reer rac­ing 50-cu­bic-cen­time­ter bikes at age 4 and went on to be­come a seven-time cham­pion in the Mon­ster En­ergy NASCAR Cup Series. Vir­gos are known for their dis­ci­plined, hard­work­ing, me­thod­i­cal ways. John­son also has a strong cur­rent of pas­sion­ate, risk­tak­ing en­ergy in his chart, with four na­tal lu­mi­nar­ies in fire signs.
